“Stranger Things” is officially returning for a fourth season! The Netflix series is confirmed for a renewal on the platform as its showrunners and creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, inking an overall deal with the streaming giant. Netflix released a teaser of an announcement clip with the tagline reading, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix,” said the brothers in a statement. “Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show — and forever changed our lives. From our first pitch meeting to the release of Stranger Things 3, the entire team at Netflix has been nothing short of sensational, providing us with the kind of support, guidance, and creative freedom we always dreamed about. We can’t wait to tell many more stories together — beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins!”
Season three of “Stranger Things” premiered on Netflix in July, gaining over 40 million home streams within its first week. The sci-fi series first debuted on the platform in 2016 and has since been one of the streaming juggernaut’s most popular original shows. It’s third season ended on another enticing cliffhanger for the journey. The show was nominated for four Golden Globes, as well as multiple Primetime Emmy wins and nominations.
With the show’s ongoing success and following, the Duffer Brothers have also inked an overall deal with Netflix, as reported by Variety. The multi-year agreement will allow the directors to produce and create more films and television series. The Duffer Brothers have also worked on the Hulu Original series, “Wayward Pines,” another sci-fi based thriller. Check out the season four announcement below!
